The Happy Snapping Turtle

I said something to one of my nurses yesterday about feeling stressed. "But you're always laughing" she said with some astonishment. I learned a long time ago that finding something to laugh about releases my stress and makes other people feel good. Two for the price of one.

Unfortunately, I snap. I snap when people push me, when people touch me uninvited, and when people hover over me while I am trying to do something. When I am in the Work Zone, do not get in my way. I am a veritable study in contradictions.

I am chatty and social. But I hate to be interrupted when I am in the Work Zone. Or when I have a mission in mind. I do not tolerate fools gladly, and I must watch my razor sharp tongue when I am annoyed.

Perhaps my totem animal is the snapping turtle. The happy snapping turtle. I'll have to think about that for awhile.

I think we all have those sides, which aren't always the ones we want everyone to know about. I know I do. I can be a complete a-hole when I want to be. I've been rude too many times. I've been quick to snap at someone as well. Usually, I'll have a tendency to blow up. I call it the "volcano effect." I don't like conflict. And, I'll take so much off of someone. All the while what I'm taking is doing this snowball effect. And, after so much, I explode. Then, all the sudden this really sweet person turns into this crazy b*tch. All concerned are in shock. Later, I usually regret my actions. I would think that I need to work on this. It would be better to confront the situation while it is young, so to speak rather than let it fester. My avoidance of conflict is most likely not so healthy under some circumstances. It is all about circumstances I guess. I'm sorry, I think I like typing to you. LOL Take care!
